MG Rick Dom Char Aznable version English Color Guide

Master Grade MS-09RS Rick Dom Char Aznable version English Translated Color Guide

I just love the design of the Rick Dom of Char Aznable. Mainly because of its lines and the sheer bulk of its frame as well as its weapons. I think however that the design of the back is sorta weak, having only a small thruster backpack. I felt that this was where the Rick Dias design improved on this Zeon design, with its larger boosters that emphasized power and helped accentuate its size. Nothing that a little pla-plate and a penchant for scratch building can't fix... hehehe

This red version was flown by Zeon Ace Char Aznable. Char's moniker, the Red Comet is quite similar to the Red Baron nickname of Manfred von Richthofen of Germany. I guess that makes Amuro Ray Snoopy? hahaha... ok kidding aside.

The Rick Dom's cockpit design is different from the usual Zeon mobile suits because it's located in the gut instead of the usual chest part. The kit differs from the regular Rick Dom with the inclusion of a Machinegun and a Char Aznable figure. Char's Rick Dom however was only featured in the novel and not the TV series.

This Master Grade Rick Dom is definitely included in my list of model kits that I want to have.
